CAMPFIRE RECIPE: PIZZA POCKET

By Get Out with the Kids


Most kids love pizzas. Making and cooking your own outside on a campfire makes them taste even better!

These Pocket Pizzas are straightforward, quick to make, and you can get the kids involved with creating them. 

They cook on the campfire or can be cooked on hot BBQ coals as well.

What you need

  • A packet of pitta bread
  • Can or jar of spaghetti or pizza sauce
  • Grated cheese
  • Optional fillings: sweetcorn, pineapple chunks, diced peppers, etc
  • Foil
  • Campfire or BBQ

Please note these pizzas are toasted, so you need to choose fillings that are safe to eat raw ( i.e., used cooked meats ) 

How to make them

1.  First cut each pitta bread in half, creating a pocket shape.

2. Add a spoon of pizza sauce - try and spread it evenly around the pocket.

3. Add your fillings and top with the grated cheese. Don't overfill the pitta bread!
 

4. Carefully wrap the pitta bread in foil and place over the hot coals of a campfire or suspended above the fire.
 

Cooking time depends on the heat of the fire, as a rough idea you may need two minutes on each side of the pizza. Best to check the first pizza after a minute, unwrap to see how well it is doing and judge for yourself. 

The pocket pizza should be a pitta bread that's not burnt with the sauce heated through and the cheese melted. 

Time to enjoy your pizzas around the campfire.

 

Tip

If you find that your pizza bread sticks to the foil then you may want to grease the foil first and place further away from the heat.
